Muna Al-Fuzai, Last week, we were all shocked by the news on Kuwait Times’ front page about the Filipina domestic worker who died in Kuwait after she was attacked by her employer’s pet lion. She was taken to hospital in a serious condition after she was attacked by the lion that escaped from its cage, but was discharged. Reports said an investigation is still undergoing. The woman is dead now, but this should not be the end of the tragedy.
A poor woman came from a distance seeking a better life for her family, but lost her life in the worst kind of death because someone’s hobby is to keep wild animals in the house and not even in cages! So the fact is that she was eaten alive or whether she died in the hospital or elsewhere doesn’t change anything.
The lion is a wild animal, and it can never be seen as a pet and it can never be compared to dogs or cats or birds. These kinds of animals belong to the zoo and must be caged and supervised because they can be a threat to humans. It seems not many people believe this, because it is becoming noticeable in the region that more people are keeping wild animals as pets, such as snakes. These people are not unstable or mentally ill. Why would someone have such kinds of animals in a house where they can attack other members including children? What is the fun in this? The same applies to those who have the sick hobby of having guns in house and so many incidents have happened because kids may not be aware of the threat to them.
